Eat Your Way Clear of Prostate Cancer

By and Tuesday, 25 August 2020 11:36 AM Current | Bio | Archive

Andre Dawson hit 300 home runs and stole 300 bases in his Major League Baseball career. He was also diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2012.

Steve Garvey holds the National League record for consecutive games played — 1,207. He too was diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2012.

They're not alone: An estimated 191,930 men in the United States will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2020.

It's true that there’s a 100% five-year survival rate if you're diagnosed while the disease is still local or regional, but the best bet is to never get the disease at all.

Guys, you can do a great deal to make sure that's your future.

Researchers recently published the findings from a seven-year study of more than 1,900 men with prostate cancer in the journal Nutrients. They reported that a Western diet loaded with added sugar in food and beverages ramps up the risk of being diagnosed with early-stage prostate cancer by more than 30%.

This complements a Harvard study that found men who have two or more servings of tomato sauce a week cut their risk of prostate cancer by 23%, and a 2000 study by the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center that found that men who ate three or more half-cup servings of cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli and Brussels sprouts each week reduced their risk by 41% compared with men who ate less than one serving weekly. 

So if you want to avoid prostate cancer, no food or drinks with added sugars. And every day enjoy a wide variety of colorful fruits and veggies, including cooked tomatoes.
